Oliver Peoples

Oliver Peoples was established in 1987 when founding brothers Larry and Dennis Leight, both trained opticians, purchased a vintage collection of American eyewear at an estate auction. While other designer creations focused on avant-garde prototypes that pushed the boundaries of eyewear, Larry and his brother chose to move in a more retro-inspired direction. What resulted was a classic line of optical glasses and sunglasses that focused on timeless shapes, quality, and function in beautiful styles and understated colors. Over time, other industry designers followed suit.
